I’m finally back from my vacation! We spent 3 weeks visiting my family in Switzerland! Daily trips and a 3-day trip to Venice left us with many wonderful memories!
I might share some pictures in a separate blog post;))
This yellow plum cake is similar to previous recipes I’ve shared using plums or peaches, but this is the first time I used yellow plums. I was really happy with the result, so yummy!
Yellow Plum Cake
- 150 g butter, soft
- 4 eggs
- 120 g honey
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 250 g spelt flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 400 g – 500 g yellow plums
-Cut the washed plums into halves and remove pits.
-Grease and flour a 26 cm Springform. Preheat oven to 350 F /180 C.
-Cream the butter with the honey and vanilla extract, then add the eggs one at the time, add a pinch of salt. Mix the baking powder with the flour and add to the wet ingredients. Mix until well combined.
-Fill into prepared Springform or baking dish then arrange the plums on top with cut side up, lightly pushing into dough.
-Bake for about 40 minutes or until tester inserted into centre of cake comes out clean.
– Let cool completely before removing from baking dish.
Tip: I brushed the top of the cake with some honey.
-Dust with icing sugar if desired.
I hope you’ll give it a try!
